investigated by the fbi. in his early 20s during the watergate era, they chopped it because they had other fish to fry. but even that and he was doing dirty tricks. >> with a billion dollars in his hands, what shenanigans d.c.? >> there's no question a huge amount of money will be going into the airwaves. if rummy implodes, it had a very bad week coming of steamship in all its attention to taking over the senate. but i also think rove has been a great master at creating a narrative in getting it out there, a counter narrative. wallace at the democratic convention in charlotte, north carolina, they're at mtv from a group called special operations upset. we will see if that turns into the veterans for truth of this campaign. also at the events in libya and middle east unfolding, you know, you can watch nbc and say romney is completely falling apart. but let me suggest you turn the channel to fox and you get a completely different narrative. but the billion dollars to fill up the airwaves, that can be built into something that has real resonance and that obama speak in the middle east and so forth
